A place of great significance in China's history. The exhibit is well laid out and provides plenty of information about the lead up and the actual creation of the communist party. Definitely worth a visit as it can be done reasonably quickly. Free, which is good.

Not really that much to see and not many photos of the real event. The museum is pretty small and a bit disapointing but considering what it is...

This small museum is interesting as the birthplace of the communist party. We did not find signs or explanations in English so I am certain we didn't get as much from the museum as was intended, which was a disappointment. If in the area I think it is worthwhile for a short visit but I would not go out of... More

I mainly enjoyed watching the chinese tourists go through the museum explaining to their children the importance of the artifacts shown. I went through the museum in half an hour, since the explanations were not very elaborative. I would have gotten more out of it if more context was given concerning the different events during this time. A background story... More

You should visit it as it explains the start of a huge change in the recent history of China. The museum hasn't got very good explanations (probably the best is the photo gallery in the end of the visit, but, unfortunately, it has no English translations) but it is worth a visit.

All ccp museums are free! Thereafter proceed to xian tian di, French confession, walk to Fuxing park and proceed to Sinan mansion. There you will enjoy the old residence of sun Yat sen and shou en Kai. Free entrance also. Thereafter end your trip at Taikang road art center and tian zi fang.

I'm surprised that this place does not rate more highly on TA. Tucked away behind the fascinating Xintiandi area, in buildings which certainly look authentic and have been well maintained, is this little historical gem. It's very clear in its political biases, but if you look at the enigma which is China today (the world's second largest economy wrapped up... More

We first visited in Summer of 1992 - then it least it had the semblance of authenticity, 23 years later that veneer is gone, replaced by a redone "museum" that naturally and incorrectly gives Mao primacy in the diorama. A little glitz with marble staircases and a nice stop if you are going to spend (waste?) money in the XinTianDi... More

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighborhood Profile
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
